Comments: P1: I second the recommendation to use the bolts to the left of the crack system for protection. in 10/2017 there were also two fixed old nuts on P1.

P3: The actual dike. Small nuts can be very helpful. Difficulty dependent on finger size. I think I ended up pinching the dike most of the way up....

Comments: Somehow I found this climb much harder than Aerial, though they are rated the same.
Felt like the first three bolts were physical climbing and the rest was very technical and "trust your feet". I took a good number of falls at the fourth bolt.
Overall a great climb.

Comments: I liked the climb quite a bit. It seemed harder to me than e.g. Foreplay. I would rate it at 11b/c, am surprised at the 11a rating. Either stuff broek off or I was getting really tired at the end of the day! Both cruxes seemed pretty technical and "sequency".

Edited: I must have been tired the first time I climbed this. It seemed much easier now, about 11a. Well protected. I counted 10 bolts, not 11 as description says.

Comments: Done the route in 9 hrs. 3 hrs to the top of Flying Buttress, then slowed down a bit. I didn't really think it had much OW climbing, a lot chimneying (incl. squeeze) though.
Placed only one or two nuts, cams everywhere else. Doubles to C4 #2, then 1 each C4 #3, #4 and 4.5 and we were perfectly fine.
We had 5 liters of water and the second was carrying or hauling pack off harness and it was too heavy. Next time I would carry less and suffer more -:)
I agree that the flake on the pitch before Nar... more >>

Comments: For the record and my comment on the P3 "crux" - I'm 5'9. For example, I thought the beginning traverse of P6 on Rostrum (the OW pitch) - rated 10c - was harder that this P3 on PV.
Regarding breaking up (or not) P6 of PV - to each its own :-)

Comments: Unless you are strong or know the moves for the 11a on P6, I would highly recommend setting up intermediate belay at the bolt on P6, before moving into the 11a section. Otherwise, if you peel off at the end of the 180ft (or so) pitch, you could go for a long ride, plus rope drag gets really bad as well.
The first 11a section on P3 is more like 10a...

Comments: You can rap off with a 70m rope if you are willing to downclimb the last approx. 10 feet to the ground.

Comments: the best route I have done so far. clean and varied.
good route beta above. I would say the P4 is soft at 11.c. On the other hand, I found P5 with the 10.d roof quite hard and exhausting.
The P6 OW is a lot of work but actually quite secure when pushing a #5 Camalot in front of you.

Comments: Is this description really for NE ridge? Can you please check out attached link to what I thought was NE ridge and see whether we are talking about the same route?
summitpost.org/route/228790/no...

It seems to me that you are referring to East ridge?

thanks
